England manager Gareth Southgate admitted the team’s performance against Iceland was ‘disappointing’.

The team were booed off at Wembley after losing 1-0.

“It was obviously a disjointed and disappointing performance and we didn’t show enough character, but I think it’s good for us before an international tournament,” Southgate told Channel 4.

“We’ve got to be better without the ball. I think there were a lot of reasons for that and across the two games we probably haven’t had our full side out. We’ve been able to look at people, we’ve been able to learn about the balance of the team.

“I’ve been involved in a lot of last matches leading into a tournament. Inevitably players have one eye on what’s coming in terms of early challenges. No excuses on the result but there are a lot of things we can put right quickly.”
